How to Store Magic Mushrooms

Magic mushrooms allow consumers to have life-changing spiritual experiences. People are psilocybin mushrooms for all sorts of occasions, from cure depression for trippy sex for hallucinatory entertainment.

If magic mushrooms aren’t stored properly, they can break down, lose potency, and even become very susceptible to bacteria or mold, a major hazard to your body.

Luckily, knowing how to store magic mushrooms is a pretty simple process once you figure it out, and it doesn’t have to be very expensive at all. Brutality has broken down everything you need to know about storing shrooms, whether dried or fresh.

Before we get into all the things you need to know about storing magic mushrooms properly, you must first consider whether you are storing magic mushrooms fresh or magic truffles – which can last up to three months in a sufficiently cool environment – ​​or dried mushrooms or truffles, which can last over a year if you play your cards right.

With any form of fungus, you run a potentially dangerous risk if you don’t take proper storage precautions. There are four main factors you need to be aware of when trying to get the longest possible shelf life for your shrooms:

If any of these four factors are not closely monitored and considered, your shrooms will lose potency, decay, or rot, and if you make a mistake and consume shrooms that have mold or bacteria growing on them , you are putting your health at risk.

Eat mushrooms can already lead to an upset stomach or feelings of nausea, and throwing mold or bacteria into the mix can wreak serious havoc on your digestive system, which won’t be fun at all to experience halfway through.

With these four important factors in mind, here are some of the most convenient and cost-effective ways to store magic mushrooms, both dried and fresh, for maximum long-term potential:

This method is the easiest way to store dried shrooms. Mason jars are easy to find at your local grocery store, and they provide an airtight, oxygen-free environment your mushrooms can stay in for up to 12 months. (We strongly recommend that you write the date you stored the shrooms on the jar for future reference).

For best results, be sure to store your mason jars filled with mushrooms in a dry, dark, and cool environment. Also, keep in mind that although shrooms will remain active and free of mold and bacteria for up to 12 months, they will likely lose some potency after about six months of storage.

Ziplock bags are another incredibly cost-effective method of storing dried shrooms, and they offer about the same protection as mason jars, if you’re careful.

When storing magic mushrooms in a ziplock bag, be sure to squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing it, and double-check the bag for any holes or openings before storing.

For added protection, some consumers will combine the two methods by first placing their shrooms in a ziplock bag and then storing the bag in a mason jar.

If stored correctly, chocolate can stay good for up to 18 months, and combining the food product with psilocybin is a great way to ensure your shrooms don’t spoil.

You can easily make your own psilocybin chocolate by grinding your dried shrooms into a powder, melting chocolate on a stovetop, and combining the two. Just make sure you don’t add the powder until the chocolate has cooled down a bit or you risk damaging the psilocybin content and reducing the potency.

It’s a great (and tasty) way to protect your magic mushrooms from the elements, as chocolate seals in oxygen and UV light.

If the edible route seems to work best for you and your preferences, another great option is to combine your dried mushrooms with honey. Mushroom-infused honey can last up to 18 months or more if stored properly – in many cases, up to two years.

To do this, simply place your dried mushrooms in a mason jar and cover them with honey. Make sure they’re at least half an inch submerged, and opt for raw honey if you can.

It doesn’t matter whether you grind the mushrooms into a powder first or place them whole – either method will keep well in honey. Throughout their stay in the jar, the active ingredients of the mushrooms will diffuse into the honey, eventually allowing you to simply eat the honey directly to experience the effects of the mushrooms.

Having shrooms in capsule form is becoming increasingly popular, especially in the brave new world of microdosing. Believe it or not, capsulated mushrooms are fairly simple to create at home and can be safely stored for up to 12 months without losing much potency.

The key is to fill the capsules as much as possible, as any empty space will cause oxygen to enter and destroy the mushrooms much faster.

A pro tip for pod storage is to use an oxygen absorber or desiccant, which will help ensure there is no potency drop over time.

If you have come across magic mushrooms or fresh truffles, which are still quite rare on the market, you will quickly learn that they are much more temperamental and can mold and rot in just a few days if not stored properly.

If you plan to use them within 5-10 days, fresh mushrooms or truffles can be stored in the refrigerator in a brown paper bag. However, if you plan to store them longer, you will need to dry them.

This can be done by: air-drying – i.e. placing the mushrooms on a paper towel for about 72 hours; dehydrate them with a food dehydrator; or freeze-drying, which is effective, but certainly the most complicated and expensive method to use.
